Traveling to San Pedro
No matter where you depart from, you’ll first fly into the hub of Belize City before coming to Victoria House on Ambergris Caye.
Belize International Airport (BZE) has non-stop service from the U.S. on Continental Airlines, Delta, American, U.S. Air, Southwest Airlines, and Copa Airlines. From Canada, it also has seasonal flights via WestJet from both Calgary and Toronto. From Central/South America there is non-stop service on TACA Airlines.
For US and Canadian visitors, a valid passport is required for entry into Belize. For visitors from other countries, a Visa may be required. If you need more details, please visit www.travelbelize.org
Once you’ve touched down in Belize City, here’s how to get to Ambergris Caye:
Ambergris Caye is approximately 35 miles off shore from Belize City, and the easiest way to reach the island is by a 15 minute commuter flight with two main airlines: Tropic Air and Maya Island Air . Both carriers have a variety of aircraft, but the main aircraft used for the flight from Belize International (BZE) to San Pedro (SPR) are 14-passenger Cessna Caravans.
As soon as your reservations to Belize City are made, our experienced and helpful Victoria House staff can assist you with arranging the connecting flights. You’ll need to provide us with the names of everyone you’re traveling with, your arrival time, and your eventual departure times. We can often quote you airfare rates which include ground transfer from the San Pedro Airstrip to/from Victoria House.
Upon clearing customs and immigration at the Belize International Airport (BZE), guests will fly to the San Pedro Airport (SPR). Once arrived, a Victoria House staff member, equipped with PPE, will meet you and drive you back to the resort in a sanitized resort vehicle. In the rare and unfortunate event of a delay or our inability to pick you up, we will arrange for a taxi to pick you from front of the terminal, take you directly to Victoria House where the front desk will take care of the taxi fare.
Once you have purchased your ticket, the boat ride is around 90 minutes, and the last boat leaves Belize City around 4pm (please note that seasonal adjustments are common).
When you arrive in San Pedro, the easiest way to Victoria House is by land-based taxi. Check-in is at 3:00 PM and check-out is at 12:00 noon.
The Belize Departure Tax is approximately $40 USD. This small fee is normally included in your international airfare. If you have any specific questions, please contact your carrier.
